  1. Well the body for my bass project is ready for a finish and a neck..

    Here are just a few pictures for you

    Mahogany Centre with AAAA Flamed Maple front and back...

    Its going to finishes in a dark rich purple burst.

    Oh my God! I thought nothing could scratch my love for J bass body shape ... but this one is probably the best bass body I've ever seen!! Classy wood choice and GREAT design ... post more pics as the bass is complete!
     
  4. hey,

    was thinking last nite of a good headstock shape to have on this bass...

    Does anyone have any good idea's as to what I should do...

    hehe

    cheers
     
  5. I would maybe try and encorporate the design of that lower horn, they way it droops off could look great with the headstock with a kinda PRS shaped head but a little longer then the bottom point shaped similar to the lower horn.

    Similar to the Fbass in Vince's avatar but with the lower point curling in a subtle way like the lower horn if the body?

    Perhaps someone on the same wavelength could photo shop a few ideas?

    Will it have a matching headstock, with a Maple top?? that would look stunning!!

    Definitely go for a 2+2 design. I'll try a elaborate something of my own starting from Zon, Alembic "crown" or Carl Thompson headstock designs.

    I like purple finishes on basses but that looks really great and classy as i would leave it but thats IMO. Either way it will look great. Deffintaly go with a 2+2 head stock like mention along the lines a thompson or zon.
